what is wrong with my knee?

so I was running and I injured my left knee. I can not stand on the left leg by itself without it slowly losing strength and giving out, when the join is contracted or extended(sitting,standing up, walking) there is pain and discomfort. there is mild swelling and my mom thinks I just pulled a muscle but Im not sure so I wanted to check and see if anyone knew.
